Dr Raffaele Tito D'Agnolo (SLAC)

Description

After an introduction to machine learning from the perspective of a theoretical physicist, I will describe a new method to perform a model independent search for new phenomena, with an emphasis on the LHC. I will discuss a systematic way to address the look-elsewhere effect and other issues that led similar attempts to fail in the past.
